“So many people today identify themselves by what they have. It’s so important to identify ourselves by what we give away,” says Fr. William Russell, S.J. Listen as he and Fr. Michael Boughton, SJ, offer their thoughts on living in gratitude, giving gifts, and caring for the poor during Advent and at Christmas.
As an early Christmas gift we present you with the The Ignatian Schola performing the Wexford Carol. The Schola is a Manhattan-based vocal ensemble composed of Jesuits and lay colleagues. This video was taken from their December 9 concert.
